Specifically American football, favorite teams?
San Francisco 49er’s for me, we’re going to go to the ship this year I feel, we’re long overdue for it. That saints game was probably the best of the year so far.
Kittle, Sherman and Jimmy G. and my team in general Are making THE PLAYS.

If you don’t watch American football feel free to talk about your favorite teams for other sports as well.

Even nothing, is something.
If one is to live balanced with expectations, then one must learn to appreciate the negative as well, to respect darkness in its own home.

All smoke fades, as do all delicate mirrors shatter.

"My ancestors are smiling on me, Imperials. Can you say the same?"

"Science Fiction today ~ Science Fact tomorrow"

Change is inevitable, it can only be delayed or sped up. Choose wisely.

Truth is pain, and pain is gain.

I love sports.. played over 10 throughout my school years, and finally settled on weight-training when 14, as the one to carry on with into my decades.. the other main sports being: gymnastics, roller-skating, cycling, 1x4 relay, 100m, 200m, netball, football, hockey, ice hockey, long jump, high jump, croquet, basketball, archery, rounders, cricket, badminton, tennis, football, British bulldog.. fun, but not exactly a sport.

Televised sports I watch: Rugby, UK NFL, UEFA, FIFA World Cup, FA Cup, Show-jumping, MMA, F1, Red Bull Soapbox race, Snowboarding, Alpine Skiing, Gymnastics, Diving, The Olympics, The Commonwealth Games, Indoor Cycling, The Invictus Games for disabled soldiers, and sometimes Motorcross and mountain-biking.

Sporting events I sometimes attend: Polo, The Invictus Games, F1.. once, Wimbledon, Henley Boat Race, White Collar Boxing.

I currently only do weights and snowboarding, and formerly Queensbury Rules Boxing which I’d like to get back into, as hobbies, and have ruled out a triathlon as too taxing and I can’t swim, but I do plan to do this in the very near future:

We played four main team sports at boarding school:

Specially adapted versions of football (i.e. soccer to our Colonial cousins) and field hockey.

Goalball and squatball, both games specially designed for blind players. Goalball involves getting a ball into a goal or stopping the opposing team doing so. Squatball involves passing a ball from one player to another so that they catch it and then pass it on.

In all four cases the ball has a bell inside it.

Lugia was very serious, reflective, contemplating life's eternal mysteries. He was introspective, enflamed by inner fragrance and beaming council. He was rattling with psychic auroras, being divined by the inner white secrets. He was extremely innocent, yet wise, encompassing the most splendid qualities of valor, imagination, polarities, and extremities, but loved life more than anything, for all of its kaleidoscopes of talismans, transformations, trinkets, and plunder.
I was the Ubermensch, deep, profound, thoughtful, and contemplative. I understood ancient mysteries, hieroglyphics of mystical proportions, mania, and exaltation above the flame of divinity. Channeling exotic psychic energies Primed My Soul for luminous revelation, soulfully touching the Bunny Aether, and zooming those exploding lights into gargantuan proportions.

It seems the whole world is playing sports.. and doing other leisurely activities.

Not so much doing sports, as strength and endurance training.

The first few days were the most difficult, but training got easier after that.
